Ca profile cancer test

Various tests done for detection of malignancy

Those of you who have been plagued with malignancy of any part of your body must be going through investigations such as CT scan, PET scan etc but how about being acquainted with any chances of malignancy prior to appearance of any growth?

This is what is being facilitated by Integrated Health International who is distributing certain videocassettes about malignancy managements, analysis, and choices so that your immense anxieties regarding acquiring malignancy another time are wiped out.

One of these is the following video:


In this video, the doctor affirms performing a high sensitivity test for C Reactive Protein which could be arranged by your own doctor in your own city and your own country.  In case your level of C Reactive Protein is elevated persistently, it denotes the fact that you are distressed with a non-exact inflammation which in itself is a forerunner of malignancy. It may not be out of place to mention here that Inflammation itself is not a wrong thing if you are afflicted with some damage or are combating an ailment;  however if you are distressed with inflammation  all the time – it can be certainly risky.

This is where the Cancer Profile Test (performed at the American Metabolic Laboratories) comes to your salvage.  The Cancer Profile tests are the brain child of a Clinical biochemist and Oncobiologist; these comprise a sequence of blood tests intended to forecast your possibility of developing carcinoma prior to the occurrence of any of its noticeable symptoms. These investigations have also been endorsed to be exceptional for supervising individuals in receipt of non-lethal or lethal treatments. For the purpose of understanding real remedial development, it is suggested that the profile should be carried out at three stages:

  • Before administration of a precise management
  •  During the course of a particular remedy
  • At the end of a distinctive cure.

Why carry out the CA Profile?

The American Metabolic Laboratories carries out the aforementioned investigations in Hollywood, Florida USA.

Now the answer to the query as to why carry out the CA Profile is as follows:

 In case the results of all investigations of somebody troubled with carcinoma are not negative, the patient may naturally desire their reports to be reconsidered so as to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of the meaning of the different blood tests. Even today, lots of researchers and medics are not acquainted with the exceptional, ultra-receptive tumor markers such as PHI {which stands for the Prostate Health Index. This useful blood test that is three times more detailed than PSA in identifying the malignancy of prostate.}PHI can serve to tell apart the malignancy of prostate from non-malignant enlargement of prostate gland which is referred to as BPH {Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.} As a result of carrying out the PHI test, any unnecessary biopsies for males (who have raised PSA levels {within a particular range} are decreased by twenty-six percent. Having said that, let us add that the majority of authorities in the field of Medicine have no familiarity regarding the use of the HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) test as a wide-ranging tumor indicator.

The CA Profile embraces the following:

The HCG and its segments

The HCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin) and its portions are generally prepared by the trophoblast cells. (The outer layers of cells of the blastocyst that form the placenta are known as trophoblast cells.) HCG is existent in a great quantity in case of any sort of malignancy. Though HCG is known to be the hormone of pregnancy yet it is also the hormone of cancer.      Two dissimilar techniques being utilized to appreciate the power of very small quantities of this hormone in the blood are as follows:

  • The immunoradiometric assay {IRMA}: a test that makes use of radiolabeled antibodies.
  •  The chemiluminescence {IMM}


Both the aforementioned methodologies are extremely sensitive and are able to detect very tiny quantities of the hormone HCG. The latter subdues the immune system of the human body and is created by the trophoblast (under those cellular conditions when there is absence of free oxygen.)

Lately, HCG urine test was designed and presented at American Metabolic Laboratories. Though not a component of the Cancer Profile yet this investigation can be requested along with the HCG tumor marker; even individually. This test necessitates around 0.5 mL of urine in its natural form. It is totally specific for the HCG hormone even in minute quantities.

PHI (phosphohexose isomerase)

PHIis the enzyme that routes cells into anaerobic metabolism (the creation of energy through the combustion of carbohydrates in the absence of oxygen.) This kind of cellular existence is preferred by malignant cells. The trail that generates more energy is known as oxidative phosphorylation. Normal cells have need of this trail when oxygen is present. Since malignant cells have a fancy for oxygen therefore when there is more oxygen, the chances of malignancy are few and vice versa. An elevated level of the enzyme PHI means that you have enhanced anaerobic conditions i.e. low oxygen

GGTP (gamma glut amyl transpeptidase) enzymes

Though GGTP is the most susceptible test for the liver, yet it may be raised in ailments of lungs, heart, and kidneys. Though not a tumor marker yet it may be raised in malignancy patients either as a consequence of proliferation of malignancy or treatment with noxious substances.

CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen)

CEA is a wide-ranging indicator of malignancy and can be raised in all varieties of malignancies. It is dominant in malignancies of the breast and that of the large gut.

The CEA test gauges a protein that may occur in the blood of individuals who are plagued with various sorts of malignancies.

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)

TSHcontrols the rate of consumption of oxygen. An elevated level (hypothyroidism) may be a prolog to malignancy.

DHEA-S (dehydroepiandrosterone)

Your immune system is weakened without satisfactory quantities of this hormone. The majority of malignancy patients as well as those in the course of building malignancy have very small or no DHEA in their blood. DHEA is present in your blood when you are under constant worry and anxiety.

Several other investigations

ü  Using pH strips (litmus paper) to measure your pH

It is incredibly stress-free and economical to calculate your pH which entails no more than sixty seconds. Basically what you need is a box of pH test bands which could be bought from any food store or even online. Analysis of your pH value is significant since it promptly specifies your fitness level. Healthful blood has a pH level of 7.35. A pH less than 7 is considered acid and is a signal of lowly health. People with a pH less than 7 may encounter symptoms such as:

  • Depleted vitality
  •  Aches and pains
  •  Fluctuations in temperament 
  • Distress and dreads
  •  Lowly sleep
  • Obesity

 Typically white plastic strips or yellow paper strips are available; the latter are more cost-effective.  These strips could be held in your urine to calculate the PH of your urine. In case you own a plastic strip, seize it and place a few drops of your urine on it; there will be a change in shade. Match this shade with that of the pH on the package of the test strip and examine the pH number. In case you have yellow paper tape, tear off a portion around two to three inches. You need to note the pH digit, in addition to your date and time. Each time you go the restroom, you will find the pH number to be altered. In case you are healthy, the number will always be about 7.3 or more after consumption of food. Your urine needs to be checked each day for a minimal of fifteen days. A pH of 7.3 is ideal in that it indicates a status of good health. If the pH of your urine is lesser, particularly less than 6.5 it is an indication that you don’t have adequate alkaline capitals to curb acids. In case your pH is equal to 5, it is an indication that you are really unwell. You can inverse this acid state by consumption of more alkaline foods.  You are deficient in minerals like calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium.  It simply conveys the message that you ought to supplement alkaline foods into your food regime and eat a smaller amount of acid food and consume uncooked green leafy vegetables, avocados, fresh almond milk, fresh coconut water, seaweed in abundance; also you ought to consume food high in animal protein, sugar and grains in a smaller amount.

CA 125

Even though CA 125 is a valuable investigation in checking females who are being remedied for ovarian malignancy, a solitary CA 125 test is not measured to be a valuable selection test for malignancy. Some females with malignancy of the ovaries never have raised CA 125 levels, whereas the majority females who do have raised CA 125 levels do not suffer from malignancy.

 CA 125 is a protein found in bigger intensity in cells of malignant tumors (especially the ovarian tumor) as compared to other cells of your body.

CA 125 is typically calculated from a venous blood specimen. It can also be calculated in fluid from the chest or belly. This investigation is centered on the utilization of an antibody (a blood protein created in reaction to and neutralizing a particular antigen. Antibodies blend chemically with materials that your body identifies as unfamiliar or foreign. Examples of such materials are bacteria, viruses, and alien materials in your blood) that is concentrated counter to the CA 125 proteins. In 1991, an upgraded form of the test was presented and is occasionally designated as CA 125 – II. The mathematical number of this second generation investigation results may be greater or lesser than a first generation investigation. The first generation test has become outdated and is no more in use currently. When it is a matter of matching various test outcomes, it can be essential to identify which mode was used. The standard values for CA 125 may differ a little among different test centers. In most test centers, the customary or standard value is 0 to 35 units/ml.

It is not conceivable to read the significance of an unusually elevated CA 125 short of extra evidence about the specific patient being assessed. This is because the blood levels of this protein can be augmented in numerous unalike benign and malevolent conditions, and a raised level does not signify that malignancy is existent. CA 125 is used most frequently to supervise patients with an identified malignancy or as one of numerous investigations in the checkup of a patient supposed of having a malignant tumor.

The most customary use of this investigation is the supervision of folks with an identified malignancy that raises CA 125 level, e.g. malignancy of the ovary. About seventy-five to eighty-five percent of females afflicted with epithelial malignancy of the ovary will have a raised level of CA 125. In a female who is identified to have a malignancy of ovary/ ovaries, the CA 125 level can be supervised every so often. A declining level usually specifies that treatment, counting chemotherapy, has been operational, while an escalating level specifies reappearance of malignant tumor.

In an individual being assessed for a pelvic growth, CA 125 levels bigger than 65 are linked with malignancy in around ninety percent cases.

Numerous benign disorders can cause rises of the CA 125 level; these include the following:



Uterine fibroids


Normal menstruation

Pelvic inflammatory disease

Cirrhosis of the liver

Malignancies of the uterine tubes, breast, pancreas, lungs, gastrointestinal tract


The CA 19-9

This simple blood investigation gauges the level of antigens in the blood serum of an individual plagued with pancreatic malignancy. CA 19-9 antigens are the materials unconfined by pancreatic tumor cells.

The CA 19-9 Radioimmunoassay (RIA) test

A blood sample is taken from the patient and then sent to a laboratory for testing to determine the level of CA 19-9 present in the blood.  This blood sample is measured using a radioimmunoassay, or RIA, test.  Radioimmunoassay is a laboratory technique that can identify specific substances in the blood.

This test calculates the level of tumor-related antigens (contagions or other alien materials that prompt an immune reaction in the body, particularly the creation of antibodies) present in the blood. 

The typical range of CA 19-9 in the blood of a fit person is 0-37 U/ml (Units per milliliter).  It is important to note that not every patient with pancreatic cancer will have an elevated CA 19-9 level. In addition, some non-cancerous conditions can cause high CA 19-9 levels.  For these reasons, the CA 19-9 test cannot be used solely as a diagnostic or screening test for pancreatic cancer. 

In general, gradually rising CA 19-9 values indicate that the cancer is developing. If the amounts continue to be identical, then the illness may be steady and unchanging. Declining CA 19-9 standards may specify that management is functioning and that the malignant tumor or quantity of cancer in the body is diminishing. A deterioration in CA 19-9 levels after management of pancreatic malignancy shadowed by an increase later may propose reappearance or advancement of tumor.

This investigation assists medics pick out whether or not to change the treatment and whether supplementary investigations or examinations are essential.

The medic will regulate how often the CA 19-9 investigations should be done.  If the cancer appears to be mounting notwithstanding management, the CA 19-9 test may be replicated each week/ subsequent to every single cycle of management is accomplished.  In an individual, who is not presently being managed, the CA 19-9 test may be used occasionally to decide if that patient should continue treatment or go through added assessment.  Persons who had their lumps surgically detached might have intervallic CA 19-9 investigations as part of their sequel. Although an elevated CA 19-9 is most generally connected with pancreatic malignancy, other malignancies, like colorectal, lung, and gallbladder malignancies, can also produce raised levels.  Extraordinary CA 19-9 levels can also be produced by non- malignant situations like stones in a gall bladder, an obstruction of the bile duct, pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, and liver sickness.

During radiotherapy, CA 19-9 levels might be raised owing to the vanishing malignancy cells liberating CA 19-9.  As the outcomes of a CA 19-9 examination are not truthful, the examination is not done during the time, the patient gets radiotherapy.

The ONCOblot test

This is an exceptionally susceptible blood test for malignancy which endorses the existence of malignancy as well as the source of the tissue via the recognition of ENOX2 proteins. This investigation is being manipulated to authorize if malignancy is really existentor not.  This exploration offers a non- intrusive subsequent step to fundamental tests e.g. an elevated PSA, an unusual Mammogram, doubtful PET scan and tissue removal.  The examination is being manipulated to detect malignancy of unidentified origin, watching for reappearance, post malignancy managements and for seeked out high threat populaces.  This blood test scrutinizes unusual proteins on malignant cells and can convey to you the information regarding the organ which is being affected by malignancy.

You also desire your blood established for Flowing Tumor Cells and Flowing Stem Cells.  The mark on this examination ought to be zero.   Nevertheless, many American test centers and laboratories yield an incorrect downbeat result for Flowing Tumor and Stem Cells.

Nearly all of these investigations necessitate a medic to pull the blood, parcel it, and conduct it to the numerous test centers.
